# Fluctuation-induced distributed resonances in oscillatory networks

@article{Zhang2019FluctuationinducedDR, title={Fluctuation-induced distributed resonances in oscillatory networks}, author={Xiaozhu Zhang and Sarah Hallerberg and Moritz Matthiae and Dirk Witthaut and Marc Timme}, journal={Science Advances}, year={2019}, volume={5} }

How do networks respond to fluctuating inputs?—Localized? Homogeneous? Resonant? Across physics, biology, and engineering, the collective dynamics of oscillatory networks often evolve into self-organized operating states. How such networks respond to external fluctuating signals fundamentally underlies their function, yet is not well understood. Here, we present a theory of dynamic network response patterns and reveal how distributed resonance patterns emerge in oscillatory networks once the…

Network desynchronization by non-Gaussian fluctuations.

- Physics, Computer SciencePhysical review. E
- 2019

A general theory for inertial oscillator network desynchronization by non-Gaussian noise is built and it is shown that higher moments of noise enter at specific powers of coupling: either speeding up or slowing down the rate exponentially depending on how noise statistics match the statistics of a network's slowest mode.

It is found that for standard, additive couplings and a net excitatory effect of oscillations, robust propagation of synchrony is enabled in less prominent feed-forward structures than in systems without oscillations and that the oscillations may serve to stabilize the replay.
